Hello ~~ thank you for checking out my dog collar page!

In addition to raising Saint Bernard puppies, I also make collars and leashes.  Shortly after I acquired my first Saint (many, many years ago!) I quickly realized how difficult it was to find collars that fit them while still being attractive ~ I had no luck in the local pet stores so I decided to shop on-line ~ yikes!!  I found some beautiful collars with matching leads, however, was going to break the bank to purchase them.  So I decided to do some research on how to make a dog collar.  Since I've been sewing my entire life, I figured this may be something I could figure out.  I did months of research, found some great hardware suppliers and here I am!  I think what I love most about doing this is the fact that I know my collars are durable because I use them on my own "monsters" AND....they are gorgeous, in addition ~ you won't "break the bank" in my shop!!!  Everytime we go somewhere, at least one person will ask:  "where did you get his collar?".

************************************************************

How they are made:  What you will see at first sight are the high quality designer fabrics that I use, those fabrics are covering a strong webbing core that resists moisture and will not stretch.  I sew the fabric securely around the webbing ~ it's sewn directly onto the webbing so there is no "twisting or shifting" at all.  The next step is adding the hardware.  I use the highest quality hardware ~ you will see most of my designs with high quality durable acetate side release buckles, nylon slip lock buckles (for size adjustment) and nickel plate cast D rings (for leash and tag attachment) ~ this is called my "standard" hardware.  I also offer several hardware upgrades ~ in fact, I love using metal hardware for my dogs ~ it's a very classy look and I feel a bit more comfortable using that type of hardware on my huge dogs......this may be something you would want to consider if you are looking for a collar for your extra large breed.  Since all of my pieces are custom made, you can pick & choose all of the options and basically create your own custom collar.

Please contact me if you have any questions or if you would like to start the process of designing your own collar ~ custom orders are ALWAYS welcome!!!   Just let me know what breed type your dog is and what you would like your collar to look like ~ I will get back to you with my suggestions and we can go from there Wink
